Reveal of the Key Crime Syndicate Leader:
Unless Helena's father is the man pulling the strings, I now have to go back and see what ever minor and major players have appeared this season.
I just would find it as a nice twist given Helena's storyarc thus far in season two. Despite my thoughts, one still can't accurately predict who will be revealed as the main villain of the season.
The only other likely suspect that I can think us is Emil, but despite his remaining temptations, he seems on the side of good again.
Another Character Death:
Again, I am thinking Guido Bertinelli as the prime candidate with Oliver as the suspect given the fact that they will be working together to get justice for Helena. His death is a great way to bring back Helena (however you plan to do it).
The other main characters as almost all of them figure prominently in the mythos and Chloe is essentially the title character. Oliver could pull a death / rebirth as Green Arrow was presumed dead in the comics for awhile. Then again, this show is inspired by the mythos as opposed to defined by it, so if Oliver and Chloe can be the main couple as opposed to Oliver and Dinah, then I guess anyone could be next.
Side Note: As so many characters are dying, how about an appearance by Dead Man or the Spectre.
Return of Vicki Vale:
I thoroughly enjoyed Vicki Vale's appearance on the show and enjoyed your choice of the new Mrs. Bartowski to fill the role.

I liked the newest interview. Great way to address the differences with between Smallville and the comics. The diplomatic answer regarding whether Chloe and Oliver are meant to be together actually draws fans into the story more.

I had watched a few episodes of the revived series off and on over the years, but after hearing good reviews (and reading some spoilers) for Series 5 and 6, I started watching the first season with Matt Smith.
Coming into the show at Series 5, despite my knowledge of some of the back story, it is definitely like watching a new show. The Doctor is a new actor with new companions (minus River, who appeared in David Tenant's last series/season) and new storyline.
It is sort how I felt with Stargate SG-1, when the Ori Storyline started. It felt like a new show as I was watching from the beginning, despite having watched the series regularly since Season 6.
Suffice it to say, Doctor Who is a great mix or fantasy, science and humor with just enough horror to satisfy most fans.
My only question is what will happen when the Doctor needs to regenerate himself beyond his race's self-imposed limit?

The only way I can see either Trinity or Watchtower (or any show currently airing on the site) not getting picked up is if the writers (1) chooses not to continue it due to time / life and (2) either the shownrunner does not want someone to take over the show for them or no one feels they can or should continue the show without the guiding force behind it.
As I said before, as a fan of Smallville in particular, I love the time and effort that everyone puts into these spin-off series and how you all find ways to be creative while still being respectful of the established canon.
To keep things unique and interesting shows that one does not have to be completely AU in order to write a compelling story and share their personal voice with others.

I recently viewed almost all of Series 5 in its entirety, and I found it to be a terrific show. I debating whether I want to go back and see the new series from the beginning before I move onto Series 6.

I agree, it's always good to bounce ideas off of others. Helps you sort out your thoughts.
Definitely excited by the introduction of Harley Quinn, as well as Martha Kent's return. Martha in particular is another great way to bring in the spirit of Superman without having Clark appear on the series.
It seems like the Red Queen is getting a lot of frequent flyer miles in both Watchtower and Trinity. With her day job as a senator, I am beginning to wonder if she has any time to visit her son and his significant other (whose name shall not be spoken for our own safety).
Which brings me to another question: Where is Connor Kent? Wasn't he with Martha the last we heard of the Lex/Clark clone.

Thank you both for the clarification.
It would be interesting to see the tension between the Avengers and Shield, similar to the current animated series. I have definitely enjoyed how the new series demonstrate while both groups are working towards protecting the world, there still exists tension between them.

I am guessing that this continuation is dead in the water.
As a fan, I would be interested in reading a Virtual Season 6 in script format. I regularly watched the Stargate franchise since Season 7 and became a big fan of SGA and would have like an additional year.
If anyone one is interested in exploring a virtual movie or needs more information in general, the best resource would be gateworld.net.
I think the network also could use another website, separate from the forum Could make it a lot easier for people to read episodes. A lot more organized too.
I think this is a good point, although I wonder if creating a separate site would lead to less traffic in the forums.
Maybe a separate site that is updated weekly with (1) general news and updates (2) links to the episodes for the week only, (3) a video showcasing your current lineup as a preview of what you have to offer, and (4) general show descriptions and staff bios.
Setting up a new site for the sole purpose of "airing" new episodes could increase traffic for the forums. The new episodes can still be posted on the forum as they have been but rotating with the week's new showings only would give the site purpose.
In general, I like the new logo/banner and color scheme, as it is both cool and not hard on my eyes.
Until you have a VS for the sci-fi category, you may want to remove it so it doesn't look like something is missing.
You could always consider moving one of the action shows into sci-fi section, as your current action line-up does involve meta-humans, mutants, cloning, supercomputers, etc.
It would fill in the gap without requiring a new show and none of the series would need to change their format as sci-fi shows often involve some action in them (Stargate SG-1 comes to mind).
